Contest Issue, #206, is DONE!

It’s about time! After what seems like an eternity, Issue #206, our Contest Issue, is finally done! I’m doing the final proofing, looking for any of my infamous misteaks, and getting the final ads sent in. It should be going to printer on Monday, October 7, 2019.

One thing I noticed just today is that this issue will mark the 20-year anniversary for Model Cars Magazine. WOW, 20 years! That’s a milestone. Although it doesn’t feel like it, especially since I have been so far behind. But, as they say, the worse is behind us.

Here is the Editor’s Corner for this issue, which tells the story of all the setbacks with me, and the magazine, over this past year or more.

A lot of you have asked for another update, so this is what I can say now.

As for Issue #206, I’m still working on it! I really miss Harry P. The work he did was incredible. I know this issue will show how bad I really am at this whole graphic design stuff, but I have been copying, I mean creatively borrowing, his old layouts/styles/etc. I have also been reading a ton of design books, something I should have done back in 1995 when I started in all of this publishing stuff. Back then, I would see layouts I liked, in “real” magazines, and adapt them to Plastic Fanatic, and then later in Model Cars.
